A short face climb on the west face of The Penguin starting in the gully between the pinnacle and the Tear Garden wall. An optional hand sized cam could be placed getting up to the first bolt.


The obvious bolted line, facing the Tear Garden wall.


An optional hand sized piece, one bolt, one pin, and one more bolt. The anchor consists of slings (some old and some new) around the summit block.

Bolts are really bad. I'll replace them this summer if no one else gets around to it.
